After an illustrious 120 year history The Conklin Pen Company continue to innovate in the spirit of their founder Roy Conklin, who established the company in Toledo, Ohio USA in 1898.
Credited with creating the first practical self-filling mechanism, the 'Crescent Filler', Conklin's quality manufacturing and innovative design soon rose to prominence worldwide. By gently compressing the crescent that protrudes from the barrel the internal pressure bar collapses the rubber sac allowing ink to fill the void.
One such admirer of this design was the great author Mark Twain who became the company's official spokesperson in 1903. In addition to his appreciation of the convenience of the mechanism Twain discovered another benefit, stating "Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver, it cannot roll off the desk."
The Crescent filling mechanism still features in the Mark Twain signature range which comprises just one part of a fantastic selection of vivid and unique fountain pens, ballpoints and rollerballs known for their one-of-a-kind resin finishes.Filter
Conklin's All American range came about as a response to the depression of the 1930s. The collection launched at a price point more affordable for the general public, combining high quality with affordable prices in a variety of unique and vivid resin finishes.

When Conklin patented their ground-breaking self-filling Crescent Filler mechanism in 1898 it soon became a favourite of the great writer Mark Twain, who became their official spokesman in 1903.
